I have just began taking Lexapro.  I'm pretty sensitive to side effects, so she started me on 1/4 tablet and increasing to 1/2 and then 3/4 and 1 tablet after a month.  Currently I'm on Wellbutrin but it makes my anxiety much worse, although really helps with the depression.  So for the next month she'll be lowering my dosage of WB to go full on the Lexapro.
I have some gastro-intestinal problems and so far what I'm noticing is just tiredness and a little nausea, but this should go away after a while I'm assuming.  I'd like to hear of your lexapro experiences.
Take care!

Hi and Welcome
From what I have read and heard from the ppl on the a/p forum it is a great med for anxiety and also helps with depression

I am so glad you have your doc on board with the weaning off the wellbutrin and going onto Lexapro
THAT is very important IMHO,,,,,,,,,,,

as you know this Lexapro could take up to 4 to 6 weeks to fully kick in and start showing you some benifits
I dont think there had / has been many side effects spoken of but I am sure you could go to back poages and look on them for other threads to do with Lexapro
n in the A/P forum there are many threads on back pages about his particual med

Wishing you all the best and
